After confronting Bentley in Hong Kong, Ashley admits: ‘I can’t believe I wasted so much time on Bentley — he’s that bad boy that wants to play women! I’m done!’
The Bachelorette episode on June 27 kicks right into action with host Chris Harrison dropping the bomb on Ashley Hebert that Bentley Williams is in Hong Kong to see her. Ashley goes down to his room and finally sees what we’ve all been seeing — that he’s a player jerk who ran his game on her heart!
“After you left, I had a hard time,” Ashley tells Bentley. “I think you leaving was really hard for me. I feel guilty because the guys don’t know how hard it was for me. They didn’t know that you specifically was hard on me.”
“I told you to come to Salt Lake if it didn’t work out with the other guys,” Bentley returns.
But Ashley isn’t being tooled around anymore. “That’s not fair to me to say that you want to leave it open,” she responds. “I still can’t let it go.”
Bentley tries to pull a fast one. “For your sake, that’s why im here now,” he says. “I couldn’t believe I went home and missed this and you.”
But he realizes his game isn’t working this time. “I think you know where I’m coming from,” he continues. “You are here for a reason. I think that knowing that I’m home, it doesn’t look good for me and you. I would implore you to [explore what you have here].”
“I feel like where you are … maybe we should call it a period,” says Bentley. “That’s it,” Ashley answers and walks out the door.
“I can’t believe I wasted so much time on Bentley,” she tells the cameras. “I needed this time away from to him to be able to see through him. He’s that bad boy that wants to play women. He’s such a player. He disrespected me to the core and I don’t understand what I did. Bentley, if you are watching this, I’m done with you.”
Lucas Daniels gets the first one-on-one. They walk the streets of Hong Kong and even Lucas notices that Ashley seems happier. A sailboat picks them up. “As of recently, I’m in a great spot,” Ashley smiles. Then the conversation takes a more serious turn. Lucas tells her that he’s divorced. He then accepts the rose.
Ryan Park, Ryan “Mickey “McLean, Constantine Tzortzis, Ames Brown, Ben Flajnik and Blake Julian go on the group date. They pair up and go dragon boat racing. And after the race, Ashley and the guys watch a couple get engaged. Ben F. gushes that he’s “on the path to love.” But, Ashley gives Ryan P. the rose.
J.P. Rosenbaum gets the last one-on-one date. He tells her that he feels like “it’s meant to be.” Ashley opens up to him about seeing Bentley in Hong Kong. He takes it so gently. What a sweetheart! J.P. deserves the rose he wears after the date.
During the cocktail party, Ashley tells the rest of the guys about Bentley — only they don’t react as understandingly as J.P. The guys are pissed and hurt by Ashley. Mickey’s so upset that he decides to go home and leaves Ashley crying.
She apologizes to the other guys with tears rolling down her cheeks: “I’m sorry. I care about each and everyone of you so much.”
Blake does not receive a rose at the ceremony.
